The Black Hole Initiative (BHI) is an interdisciplinary center at Harvard University involving a collaboration between Principal Investigators (PIs) from the fields of Astronomy (Sheperd Doeleman, Avi Loeb, Ramesh Narayan and Priyamvada Natarajan), Physics (Andrew Strominger and Netta Engelhardt),
Mathematics (Shing-Tung Yau) and Philosophy (Peter Galison).
The BHI is the first worldwide center to focus on the study of black holes.
